Russian weightlifters are not admitted to the Olympics

Российских тяжелоатлетов не допустили к Олимпиаде

The international weightlifting Federation has suspended national team of Russia from participation in the Olympic games in full force.

Official site of the International weightlifting Federation reports that the Russian weightlifters are not allowed to participate in the Olympic games in full force.

Earlier, the IOC granted the right to international sports federations to determine the possibility of participation of Russian athletes at the games in Rio.

As you can see, the international weightlifting Federation took a decision not in favor of the Russians. This is largely due to the fact that earlier, the Russian lifters have already been caught for doping, as a consequence, their reputation was tarnished and without the current scandal.
